    Gathering Resources for Mr. Kyle

    Let's capitalize on the attention and see if we can push to get him a temporary ID card and some SSI benefits...scattered throughout the threads are people who have mentioned that they have ideas on how to do this or whom to contact-can we put them here and see if we can finally get this done for him?

    Advocate for BK

    Benjaman Kyle needs an advocate.
    That person could help him through the many layers of getting a new ssn, considering his unique set of circumstances.
    That person could help him in finding a job or receiving SSI, if that is what he wants.
    Social security number must come first.

    Congressman office could do that for him.
    Dr Phil show could step up and do that also.
    Bk must have met many people who are willing to guide him
    through the systems and be his advocate.

    He is in Georgia. I am in Oregon or I would volunteer. I worked for the State of Oregon for over 20 years and know my way around state and federal agencies.

    Do you any updated news about this situation?

    How to get ssn:

    How to get new ssn:

    Get an advocate.

    Call local social security office for an interview for benefits.

    Contact local social security office. Call ahead of time to get assigned to someone who is the lead worker or in management. His case will need the approval of local manager or social security main office.

    Bring many newspaper articles, the short police report, paramedics report, hospital reports, copies of medical tests done. Bring the video from Dr Phil show and other tv interviews.

    Bring FBI agent with you. If not, make sure he is contacted by social
    security office.
    He can verify the steps FBI has taken to find BK identity and failed.

    There had been talk of his not having the $800.00 needed for copies of his medical records. I would think the Dr Phil show or Congressman's office could pay this.
    Write out an outline of what happened when.
    Be prepared. Be organized. Be determined. Be focused.

    Once ssn received, can apply for a job, can apply for food stamps, medical, housing, or transitional housing.
    Once has income, working or SSI, can open a bank account, get a driver's license, passport.

    surprised by?

    I have to say I am surprised that a hospital social service case worker did not take his case and be his advocate.
    Or a church did not take up his cause and be an advocate.

    I am also surprised that someone or someones more "powerful" and able to cut thru red tape has not stepped in the ring with a heavy foot for Benjaman. I know there are alot of people in his corner and several of them have made good impacts but it seems oddly not to be making real headway. At least not in the area of helping the man be able to legally work. I know on the Dr. Phil show Benjaman mentioned something about having to say he's not a citizen (paraphrase) in order to attempt gaining a SSN. I don't know the path that was taken in that attempt to arrive at that spot on the issue but sheesh, that sounds like asking a man to give up his birthright, he's already without a true identity and they want his dignity too?!

    In my opinion, regarding the SSN, it's only as complex as the agency wants to make it. They recycle SSN's now, people who we know outright should not have one sometimes do, it's not as if the SS system is a shining, working system... the man wants to put something in and pay some taxes... and they have a problem with that?!

    Does anyone know if Georgia's congresspeople, representatives, etc. have been contacted regarding this issue for Benjaman?

    Benjaman Kyle is now working with Ga. U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston office. since Aug. 07.
    But even they had not been able to get medical records released, as of Dr Phil show time.

    I still find it strange that no one, not Ga. Rep. Jack Kingston, or the FBI agent in charge, or friends, or the church reverend where BK volunteered, no one has been able to actually guide this man through the system and find a small bit of information.
    Besides the fact, that BK appears to be an intelligent person, who has done his own research online, gone and talked to motel and restaurant owners near Richmond Hill Burger King, tried to track down abandoned rental cars or personal cars in Aug./Sept. 2004, with no success. He has undergone hypnosis and had no results.

    I hate to say it, because I want to help as much as the next person, but
    I spent over 20 years as a case manager, and something does not feel right to me.

    Has BK regained some of his memory and it isn't nice? But then why would he go on Dr Phil show?
    Has he remembered that he is gay and does not want others to know or doesn't think it is anyone else's business. And it isn't, of course.
    Has he remembered he left a wife and kids and just took off because he was tired of the whole thing?
    But wouldn't the wife report him missing?
    Has he remembered that his job was somewhat shady?
    But why is he not listed anywhere in the missing persons files that so many people have scoured trying to find his identity?
    Maybe he has had amnesia before or a fugue state before?
    But wouldn't his prints be on file, by some social service agency or police department, so others would know this has been a prior problem?
    Hmm. I do not know. But
    I know something feels 'off.'

    Hi dreamweaver, thanks for the response. I went ahead this afternoon and emailed off a few letters to a senator, a congressman, and a couple of people with a GA non-profit legal program for his area. The senator's came back right away with an auto-response that provided a personal email (in case it was important - I considered it so, lol) so I remailed it there. I'll post what, if any, result I get from those.

    I know what you mean about something feeling "off". That feeling wafts in and out for me ... mostly because I keep getting to the point where I'm screaming inside "why is no one looking for him!" I really want him to have his medical records, I'm so hopeful that something is within them to make a push forward.

    *sigh*

    FYI:
    I just wrote an email to Salvation Army to see if they can help with BK situation.
    When I worked as a case manager, Salvation Army helped find missing relatives.
    I do not know if they work with amnesia victims.

    Wow, I didn't know Salvation Army did anything like that! Good to know. That'll definitely be in mind when I start hearing bells and seeing kettles soon!
